Wild Child

Ever close your eyes
ever stop and listen
ever feel alive
and you've nothing missing
you don't need a reason
let the day go on and on

Let the rain fall down
everywhere around you
give into it now
let the day surround you
you don't need a reason
let the rain go on and on

What a day
what a day to take to
what a way
what a way
to make it through
what a day
what a day  to take
a wild child

Only take the time
from the helter skelter
every day you find
everything's in kilter
you don't need a reason
let the day go on and on

Every summer sun
every winter evening
every spring to come
every autumn leaving
you don't need a reason
let it all go on and on

What a day
what a day to take to
what a way
what  a way
to make it through
what a day
what a day to take to
What a day
what a day to take to
what a way
what a way to make it through
what a day
what a day to take to a wild child
What a day
what a day to take to
what a way
What a way
to make it through
what a day
what a day to take to
Da-da-da-
Da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da
what  a way
what a way
to make it through
Da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da
what a way
what a way to make it through
what a day
what a day to take to a wild child
what a day
what a day to take to a wild child

Only Time

Who can say
where the road goes
where the day flows
- only time
And who can say
if your love grows
as your heart chose
-only time

Who can say
why your heart sighs
as your love flies
-only time
And who can say
why your heart cries
when your love lies
-only time

Who can say
when the roads meet
that love might be
in your heart.
And who can say
when the day sleeps
if the night keeps
all your heart.

Night keeps all your heart

Who can say
if your love grows
as your heart chose
-only time
And who can say
where the road goes
where the day flows
-only time

Who knows    - only time
Who knows    - only time

Deora ar mo chroí (Tears in my heart)

Ba dheas an lá go oiche
Na glórtha binne i mo thaobh
'S aoibhneas i gach áit gan gruaim
Áthas ar mo chroí go deo
He-a-ro
He-a-o-ro

Ma shiúlaim ó na laetha beo
An ghrian 's an ghealach ar mo chúl
Nil uaim ach smaointe ó mo shaoil
Deora ar mo chroí go bron
He-a-ro
He-a-ro
He-a-o-ro

Translation:

How wonderful, from morning to night
the sweet voices at my side,
and happiness everywhere, without sorrow,
joy in my heart forever.
Lament.

If I walk away from life,
the sun, the moon behind me,
I have only the memories of my life,
and sad tears in my heart.
Lament.

Flora’s secret

Lovers in the long grass
look above them,
only they can see
where the clouds are going,
only to discover
dust and sunlight
ever make the sky so blue.

Afternoon is hazy,
river flowing,
all around the sounds
moving closer to them,
telling them the story
told by flora,
dreams they never knew.

Silver willows,
tears from Persia,
those who come
from a far-off island,
Winter chanterelle lies
under cover,
Glory-of-the-sun in blue.

Some they know as passion,
some as freedom,
some they know as love
and the way it leaves them,
Summer snowflake
for a season
when the sky above is blue,
when the sky above is blue.

Lying in the long grass
close beside her
giving her the name
of the one the moon loves,
this will be the day she
will remember
when she knew his heart was

loving in the long grass
close beside her
whispering of love
and the way it leaves them
lying in the long grass
in the sunlight,
they believe it's true love,
and from all around them
flora's secret
telling them of love
and the way it breathes and
looking up from eyes of amaranthine
they can see the sky is blue,
knowing that their love is true,
dreams they never knew,
and the sky above is blue.

Fallen Embers

Once, as my heart remembers
all the stars were fallen embers.
Once, when night seemed forever
           I was with you.

Once, in the care of morning
in the air was all belonging,
Once, when that day was dawning
           I was with you.

How far we are from morning,
how far we are
and the stars
            shining through the darkness,
falling in the air.

Once, as the night was leaving
into us our dreams were weaving.
Once all dreams were worth keeping.
          I was with you.

Once, when our hearts were singing,
               I was with you.

Pilgrim

Pilgrim,how you journey
on the road you chose
to find out why the winds die
and where the stories go.
All days come from one day
that much you must know,
you cannot change what's over
but only where you go.

One way leads to diamonds,
one way leads to gold,
another leads you only
to everything you're told.
In your heart you wonder
which of these is true
the road that leads to nowhere,
the road that leads to you.

Will you find the answer
in all you say  and do?
Will you find the answer
in you?

Each heart is a pilgrim,
each one wants to know
the reason why the winds die
and where the stories go.
Pilgrim,  in your journey
you may travel far,
for pilgrim it's a long way
to find out who you are..

Pilgrim, it's a long way
to find out who you are..

Pilgrim, it's a long way
to find out who you are...

One by one

Here am I
yet another goodbye!
He says Adios,  says Adios,
and do you know why
she won't break down and cry?
-she says Adios,  says Adios,  Goodbye.

One by one my leaves fall.
One by one my tales are told.

It's no lie,
she is yearning to fly.
She says Adios, says Adios,
and now you know why
he's a reason to sigh,
- she says Adios,  says Adios,  Goodbye.

One by one my leaves fall,
One by one my tales are told.

My, oh my!
She was aiming too high.
He says Adios,   says Adios,
and now you know why
there's no moon in her sky,
-he says Adios,  says Adios,  Goodbye.

No Goodbyes
for love brightens their eyes
don't say Adios,  say  Adios,
and do you know why
there's a love that won't die?
-don't say Adios,  Say  Adios,  Goodbye.

..don't say Adios,  say Adios,  Goodbye.
..don't say Adios,  say Adios,  Goodbye.
..don't say Adios,  say Adios,  Goodbye

Lazy Days

Lazy old day
rolling away
dreaming the day away
don't want to go
now that I'm in the flow
crazy amazing day

One red balloon
floats to the moon
just let it fly away
I only know
that I'm longing to go
back to my lazy day

And how it sings and how it sighs
and how it never stays
And how it rings and how it cries
and how it sails away.. away...away....

Isobella

I do bheatha sa tús,  sa deireadh,
I do bheatha sa tús,  sa deireadh.
Isobella, o.
Isobella, o.

I do lá's tú go samh
I do lá's tú go fior.
Grá,  anois go deo na ndeor.

I do bheatha sa tús, sa deireadh,
I do bheatha sa tús, sa deireadh.
Isobella, o.
Isobella, o.

I do lá's tú gan buairt
I do lá's tú gan bron
Grá, anois go deo
Grá, anois go deo na ndeor.

Translation:

You live from the beginning to the end
Isobella    Isobella

A day that belongs to you, tranquil
A day that belongs to you, pure of heart
Love, now and forever

You live from the beginning to the end
Isobella     Isobella

Your day has no sorrow
Your day has no sadness
Love, now and forever
Love, now and forever
